Well... I still have a pair of 3D glasses; therefore I don't have to buy a pair of 3D glasses.
In any case, this is a major blow; I mean the cost of 3D is already high as it is and I thought that the cost of 3D movies covered the glasses, I guess it didn't. Sony's decision is likely to further the theory that 3D is just a gimmick, that it's not a serious cinematic revolution; because now we're being forced to pay more for 3D then we did before.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
Which cinemas are they. I'm here in Australia & I've seen none of these guest 3D glasses yet. Like in the U.S.A., I have to pay more to watch a 3D than a 2D film anyway. When you pay for your ticket, you get the 3D glasses straight away also at the same time. The 3D glasses are sealed in a plastic wrap with some round air hole vents on the plastic itself. Personally myself, I will continue watching those 3D movies, but to a lesser extent if they bring it in here what they're going to do in the U.S.A.
At a $4 dollar premium where I live for 3D I find this ridiculous. Most places ask that you drop the glasses in a box at the end up the movie for recycling at the end of the show anyways. Which basically means they sterilize them and put them in plastic bags again. At one show I went to they were literally forcing people to leave the glasses and questioning people who did not drop them in the box (in my case my wife dropped three pairs in the box) and they were yelling at me and another friend who were behind her for not leaving the glasses.
Disney world does the same thing they simply take the glasses and run them through a sterilization process and don't even package them so the movie theaters should adopt the same principles.
I wouldn't go see a 3D movie anyhow, so it makes no difference to me. And I won't go see *any* Sony picture. Boycotting all Sony products forever is the only;y way I have to punish them for distributing PC viruses on consumer audio CDs. If a private citizen had done that, they'd be in jail until Hell freezes over, but Sony got a light slap on the wrist because they're a Megacorporation.
I'll just stay with 2D then... lol.
